This summer, in the beautiful borderlands of Northern Ukraine, a fellow PCV and I have organized a healthy lifestyles summer camp, Camp Cowboys & Cossacks! This will be the first time youth from this region of Ukraine will have the opportunity to attend a Peace Corps operated summer camp.
The camp will be an English-language healthy lifestyles camp which will focus on teaching attendees (ages 12-15) about healthy lifestyle choices, sports and sportsmanship, leadership, and effective decision-making. The campers will get a chance to live for a week in an active and fun community. Each day they will learn new sports, participate in contests and attend healthy lifestyles classes. Campers will also receive HIV/AIDS awareness and tolerance training in their native language (conducted by the youth leadership team from my site!)
It’s going to be amazing, that’s a guarantee, but we can’t do it without your support! Please consider donating towards our project, any amount, no matter how small, is tremendously appreciated!
As a bonus, every donor will have access to the Camp Cowboys & Cossacks blog, complete with updates about the project’s progress, and pictures and video from the camp itself, as well as be the recipient of handwritten thank you letters from the camper’s themselves. 🙂
